Isn't Asus one of the best (if not the best) mobo manufacturer right now?

They're good, but Gigabyte is just as good anymore. At least IMO.

I'd go for the gigabyte board over a Asus if I were building a new system. And I'm running a Asus ATM.

there is no way a stock E2180 is better then a stock Q6600

i hate to burst your bubble but... i idle @ 200w....
i use 390w-420w(load p95) on my sig rig...
a quad-core 4.0GHz 500x8 1.42vcore....
i use over 450wISH gaming and folding on 2 cores, thats with a lil 7600GT....
i would think he would use atleast 550w...........
min......
i would still get atleast a 600 - 650w PSU!!!
a really good 1... like in the $100 to $150 range.

i was stupid once....
bought a 500w PSU with 2x 25a 12+
looked good for $35 ATM....( bought a year a go)
well it fried my P5N-E SLi 650i and my FX5500(my first 1)
ofcourse the PSU went with it........... within a few weeks.....
now that PSU is $15 the last time NewEgg had them
the Dell OEM 250w was better than this PSU
.................................................. ................................^^^^^^^^ the Rockets show how i feel about it!!!!

I was looking at the Gigabyte board, but i went with the Asus cause it had IEE1394. Same reason I didn't go with the Blood Iron. Any other good MB with firewire? I just think that if he is putting this much into a system, he should get the most out of it. (Maybe there is a cheap ieee1384 expansion card online...)

As for the memory, I've heard good things about the GSKill, so I think im going to stick with that too.

I think I'm going to stick with the q6600 just to keep it future proof. I know most software out doesn't take full advantage of it yet, but later it will.

I'm tempted to cut back from the 8800, and go with something a little cheaper. Say a 3870 or 2600. Any other suggestions on video cards?

Unless you're willing to spend the extra money for an X38 and two 3870s, your rig looks good.

Nice find! I'll check into that. I was also looking at the 3870 from new egg to go with a cheaper alternative, but they jacked up the price :/
